It appears that the many users affected by T-Mobile range blocks, which of course will (for the most part) only affect mobile devices, are not able to see any of the helpful templates intended to be viewed in the block notice on mobile, because of this issue.

It hasn't worked for the Spanish Wikipedia's CopyPatrol since the 4th of January, it seems. Same with the French version.

There's discussion on enwiki about also having a rate limit on blocking users. Seems like a reasonable enough idea, but we'd want it high, as we really only want it in cases of truly malicious users.
I believe this should be handled by a meta RfC rather than discussion at the enwiki Village Pump and a Phab ticket. (Unless, of course, the WMF wants to act on it immediately as a security issue)

Oh this is done. It has been reviewed by @Adotchar
@Halfak @Adotchar can either of you confirm that this task can be closed? I remember some confusion on IRC when Aaron's comment went through. I would assume that experimentation would have to be done on the beta cluster, which doesn't have the models enabled yet, so unsure how this task would be completed. I'll update the task description per my understanding, please edit if I'm off-base.

OK so here's what I suggest you do.
- Disable the new recent changes filters in your preferences.
- Edit your "/common.js" to look like mine: https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:EpochFail/common.js
- Go back to Special:RecentChanges and wait a little bit. ORES should highlight changes that are likely to be damaging.
- Tell us how it goes!
I did a little bit of testing and I was able to catch some damaging edits :)
